CRESTVIEW — Mosaic Church’s military wives can count on others while their husbands serve overseas.

The church’s Military Wives Network assists busy spouses with yard work, automotive repairs or other everyday tasks.

Regardless of the service needed, the church finds members who can help 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) members, nearly 70 percent of whom comprise the congregation, women's ministry leader Christie Ross said.

"Most are (military wives) at home without their husbands and they were looking for a church," she said. "They come here."

If a military spouse has car trouble, Ross links her with a trusted mechanic; the service particularly helps while husbands are away, Julie Drost, a mother of four, said.

"We wives have a real issue with getting ripped off ... with car maintenance," she said.

 The network also offers moral support.
